A complete pen-and-paper roleplaying game. For some, Risus is a handy “emergency” RPG for spur-of-the-moment one-shots and rapid character creation. For others, it’s a reliable campaign system supporting years of play. For others still, it’s a strange little pamphlet with stick figures. With this edition, Risus celebrates not only two decades of existence, but two decades of life, bolstered by an enthusiastic global community devoted to expanding it, celebrating it, sharing it, and gaming with it.

Humorous roleplaying game with worthy ideas!
RISUS was, and to some still IS, among the best ways to have fun roleplaying. Cumberlandgames provided a handful of example adventures, which were quality and elaboration of how RISUS approaches the setting. I remember my halfling thief running afoul of an alchemist guild in a solo-adventure for RISUS. The game is lovely in its own way, and went through quite some ebb and flow of appreciation and success. Not junk, not just another dead copycat. Worthy to be checked-out.
